I've come to use hydergine and
much in the way that I used to
use coffee, but without any of the nasty side effects that I experienced
from caffeine. Both increase my mental clarity, alertness, improve my
concentration, enhance my memory, sharpen my verbal acuity, and can even
be used synergistically for a unique effect unlike either on their own.
But it's hydergine, in particular, that acts as a mild antidepressant.
has the added feature of increasing my auditory sensitivity,
much in the way that marijuana does, without the high, and allows me to
experience heightened attentiveness to detail when listening to music.
